I Remember The Day, Dad

I remember the day dad,
When you chased me around, to get me to hospital
For the treatment of fever which I had.

I remember the day dad,
When you scolded me and hit me
And later how you felt bad.

I remember the day dad,
When for the first time you took me to school
Leaving me there, how you felt sad.

I remember the day dad,
When I got into medical college
And with happiness you went mad.

I remember the day dad,
In your village, in front of your elders
How you behaved like an obedient lad.

I remember the day dad,
When we both felt upset
As India lost a test match in Trinidad.

I remember the day dad,
When I was feeling low and had lost all hope
But you always had a word of encouragement and advise to add.

I remember these entire days dad,
I cherish the memories of us together
To have had a father like you I am really lucky and glad.

I remember each and every day,
When you had so many things to do
And I always learnt something from you.

Lovely poem Vikram. Heart felt and evocative. Thanks for sharing.
Very nice poem! I wish we all remembered our Dads like you do. Thanks.
It would seem clear that you are both wonderfully caring people, the song goes on Love Duncan X
Absolutely beautiful.
